There were a number of beautiful photos of the HTC U Ultra I could have chosen for this post, because the phone is very nicely made. Its reflective glass shimmers in the light in a way that no other does. It's also $749 USD.
Now, Canadians can get in on the fun, with the U Ultra available unlocked through HTC's website for a cool grand. That's $999 CAD.
Available in three choice colors — blue, white, and black — the phone has all the makings of a great flagship, but as Andrew Martonik points out in his review, there just aren't many reasons to buy one over the many cheaper and better alternatives:
HTC continues to get the basics right with flagships. The U Ultra has a great screen, amazing build quality and stunning design. You get just about every spec inside you'd expect, and the day-to-day performance as a result is fantastic with a super-smooth software experience. Unfortunately, HTC's camera performance once again lags behind the pack, its secondary display is all but useless and there's no headphone jack or waterproofing — all in a phone that's charging a premium price of $999 CAD.
If you can get over those things, the HTC U Ultra is still a great device with some awesome HTC-built software.
